    The pacing is poor and it's a technical wreck. [Feb 2010, p.82]
  2. From a casual gamer's view, I really wanted to like this game more then I did but I found it difficult to hold my attention to it. That being said, fans of the series may have a little more patience for it then I did but I just can't help but think but nothing can hide the inventible issues one may come across.
  3. Nothing game-breaking, but there's so many oddities, annoyances and moments of utter frustration that keep this game from being as great as it could have been. Nevertheless, there's plenty here to entertain, and it's not every day that a game can stand up against Bioware and not be utterly crushed.

    Divinity II: Ego Draconis is not going to change the genre with its new elements, but it is worth checking out if you really are a fan of the genre.
  5. For adventurous players willing to remain undeterred by warts and wrong turns, Divinity II is something quite special—an RPG with a flavor all its own, and one not to be missed.
  6. After a while, it all turns into a dull routine, with precious little replay value. For an RPG, this is not good.
  7. Divinity II is the kind of game that falls neatly into the category of "guilty pleasure" for me. It's an RPG that doesn't really break new ground, but plays well enough and provides a challenge.
  8. If you can put up with its flaws and want to lose yourself playing a game for hours then this is for you but if your the kind of person who gets annoyed easily and who wants a truly immersive RPG then stay well away.

    Yes, it's pretty rough around the edges and yes, it can be frustrating to interface with. What it is, however, is a very good story with an engaging combat engine, lots of content and a good bias towards action.
  10. Divinity II isn't without its charms, but weak game design sullies the thrill of digging into the many secrets of its outstanding world.

    Diluted by hours of confusing side quests and repetitive battles, these original moments don't shine as brightly as they should. [Mar 2010, p.78]
  12. Divine 2 is quite a disappointing RPG, there is no real feel of progression for your character and the presentation is quite poor. RPG fans may like it, but there are better games out there.
  13. The story is compelling and well told, and there's certainly enough flow to put it in the category of "just ten more minutes" games - but you'll need a lot of patience to get the most out of Ego Draconis.

    Divinity II aspires to be so much, but unfortunately its shortcomings overshadow what positive points this game has.

    Grab a shovel. [Feb 2010, p.91]
  16. There is plenty to do in Divinity II, and if you don't mind putting up with the poor visuals or combat, there are plenty of side-quests to take on to extend your experience.
  17. Something that could have otherwise been a surprise hit ends up beings a problematic mess.
  18. Divinity II: Ego Draconis left us with a bitter taste: while being a quite good PC game, the console porting leaves much to desire. The charm of being able to transform into a dragon and the nice plot aren't enough to save the game, undermined by a shoddy technical side and a frustrating gameplay.

    A dreadful port. [Issue#54, p.92]

    It promises you the world, but never delivers, which is a shame, because, with some polish and some elbow grease, it could've been a spectacular RPG on the order of a BioWare classic. As is, though, I simply cannot recommend it.
  21. All in all, if you have the time, patience, and the will to endure the technical issues, you may find the bits of this game that makes it unique from games like it. Divinity II isn't going to set the world on fire, no matter how many dragons you can transform into, but it is a worthy look if you enjoy quest oriented RPGs.

    Creative, but a long way from divine. [Feb 2010, p.102]

    Divinity 2 proves to be a lacklustre by-the-numbers fantasy title marred by a host of technical hiccups on the Xbox 360.

Good graphics, sound and voice acting, sufficient depth. From reading reviews, I believe it must have been patched- I am 4 hours into it and have not experienced any glitches. This is the game to fill the gap until Skyrim comes out. Seems more like a Bioware or Bethesda release. Bravo Atlus! Keep it up- you could be a contender! Full Review »

    Well, I was in the market for a good Dragon game. That is, a game where you play as a dragon. Anyway, I had heard of this game via internetWell, I was in the market for a good Dragon game. That is, a game where you play as a dragon. Anyway, I had heard of this game via internet and I got it for Christmas. I was so exited when I booted it into my xbox! How disappointed was I when I saw how the graphics were nothing but grainy textures. There were no tutorials for much of anything, as I quickly found I could not find out how to map anything to anything. And the difficulty, oooh the difficulty. This game is best played by those who enjoy endless grinding. Even on easy mode, I found it hard to keep up with even the most basic mobs. Full Review »

    Yet another game with good idea's and no execution. It's lack of polish is criminal as it's full of bugs, glitches and other game ending fun.Yet another game with good idea's and no execution. It's lack of polish is criminal as it's full of bugs, glitches and other game ending fun. It has a interesting story but due to the spotty voice acting and tedium you really have to grind it out to care. Graphically it's regular Xbox quality, gameplay wise it's repetitive and clunky. Enemies don't scale with you or respawn, instead areas are either weaker then you or much much stronger and often wandering or exploring a new place will result in fighting a impossible battle (Open world? Laugh) The supposed saving grace of this game was supposed to be the dragon combat however it's entirely boring and uninspired. Rent if you must but be warned. Full Review »
